Code and Stability Checks during Staged Analysis

Question:

This relates to the model submitted under Ticket 15319703. Can MIDAS perform any code and/or stability checks on the non-composite sections of the girders and/or the straddle piers at the end of each stage? We have utilized checking features in CSiBridge which have allowed us to perform these checks at the end of the stages and were wondering if it was possible with MIDAS. Thanks!

Answer:
Hi,

Code check on the non-composite sections defined from the DB/User tab of the Section dialog can be performed as per AASHTO-LRFD 12.


However, it is not possible at the end of each stage. It is only possible at the end of the last stage, which corresponds to PostCS in the program.


As a workaround, you can specify any stage as the last stage in the 'Construction Stage Analysis Control' dialog. Then, you can perform code check for the particular stage.
